[HAPPY BIRTHDAY KEVIN]

And Happy Graduation too! Kevin's 28th birthday was yesterday. He'd had a pretty rough day at school...so we only opened presents and then had his big birthday dinner today. Here are the girls helping daddy open his birthday/graduation present from me. And then showing off the new tie they gave him.
So today we had a yummy birthday dinner. Steak, smashed potatoes, asparagus...mmmm!!! Followed by a fabulous birthday cake (even if I do say so myself!).
Seriously...don't ya wanna piece???!!!
Happy Birthday Babe and Happy almost Graduation!
You're only a few days away from being done with school...woohooo!!!
We love you so much and are so proud of you and so thankful for all you do for our family!

{Livin' on a Prayer}

On our way to Nashville for the BON JOVI concert!!
We first did some shopping at the Opry Mills Mall, then stopped off at Neely's BBQ for some very delicious food! I'm a huge Food Network Fan and they have a show called 'Down Home with the Neely's' hosted by Pat & Gina Neely. We thought it'd be fun to go somewhere "famous" and it did not disappoint. We even got to meet Pat Neely's brother, Tony Neely. He'd just come from Memphis where they'd been shooting another episode of Down Home with the Neely's. So that was kinda fun...getting to meet someone famous too!!
Then it was onto the concert!! Oh my....sooooooo excited!!
Enjoying the thrilling energy of just being in the same building as Jon Bon Jovi!! :-)
OH MY GOODNESS....here he comes on stage!
I don't think I sat down for the next 2 1/2 hours!
...whooo-oh, you're half way there-ere!!!!
BON JOVI BABY!!!!
Once again...what a fabulous concert! Enjoyed again with fabulous company!
Thanks Wave and Emily for a most entertaining, enjoyable, fun road trip to Nashville and concert-going experience!!

Alexa & Sydney
Once again, hanging out with friends! Alexa and Sydney are definitely two girly-girls! They love anything to do with princesses, makeup, jewelry...anything girly! I think Sydney is a makeup artist in the making!! We're sure going to miss Sydney and her mama!

Thunder Over Louisville

We finally did it...we went downtown to watch Thunder Over Louisville live last night! This is the 5th Thunder since we moved here AND our last, so we figured we better experience it at least once before we head back out west. And thanks to my fabulous friend, Waveney, we even got to enjoy it just the two of us...which was a huge blessing since we had to walk about 2 miles from where we parked and it was late so the girls would have been super tired, not to mention Alexa isn't a big fan of loud noises so we wouldn't have been able to enjoy it anyways.
And what a show!!! We LOVE fireworks and it did not disappoint!
And here's a little video of the grand finale for your viewing pleasure...just make sure your volume isn't too loud!!
